So Matt Holliday took Starlin Castro out on dirty slide. We cried for blood. And though the Cubs didn’t plunk Holliday like he deserved, there was something diabolical about watching him swing and miss, paranoid and waiting to be drilled.
We don’t know if that was the plan, but it was a good time.
And there were other good times, as well.
-Soriano hitting a three run homer and a two run homer.
-Grabow catching Sori’s two run homer in the bullpen. In his hat.
-The multiple run innings are back. 4 runs in the fifth and 5 runs in the first. If only they could have them more often. And in the same game.
-Tyler Colvin back with the big boys and putting together some decent at-bats.
-Garza making up for a less than stellar start with some nice defense and a hit.
-Len and Bob analyzing the pitching ritual of Jason Motte, noting everything he touches before he throws the ball (not quite as creepy as it sounds, really).
-Wood’s behind the back catch. Seriously. It doesn’t get more fun than that.
